Setting goals to grow your business are needed because you can easily get caught up in the day-to-day tasks of running your business. You spend all of your time trying to keep the ship afloat and this means you’re not focused on navigation, so you aren’t setting a course.
This may not be a problem now but eventually, you’ll wake up and realize your business has stagnated and you feel bored, uninspired, and empty. You don’t want that to happen!
To avoid it, you need to be setting goals regularly. These should be goals that bump up against your barriers, make you stretch out of your comfort zone, and give you a rush when you complete them.
It’s Time to Choose Your Next Growth Goal
What is it that you want to create more of in the world and in your business?
Dig deep into what you want and why you want it. If you could redesign your business from the ground up, what would that look like?
- Would you serve a different ideal client?
- Would you launch your own digital product line?
- Would you work part-time while you travel the world?
Creating a growth spurt in your business starts with setting a goal and seeing it through. Don’t be afraid to set an ambitious goal and pursue it with courage and determination. Here are five amazing ways you could grow your business.
Maybe you want to write a book, launch a course, or finally start that podcast you’ve been dreaming of.
What Will Your Goal Look Like?
It’s not enough to simply know what your goal is. You also have to decide how you’ll bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be.
In some situations, you may instinctively know the answer to this question but in case you don’t, take some time free writing about it and really tap into what it looks and feels like in detail.
How Will It Change Your Business?
Creating a growth spurt in your business often means re-arranging things, even if just temporarily.
If you want to take on three new clients, you have to focus more of your time and attention on marketing your services. If you want to launch your first product, you have to budget time for product creation each week.
When Will You Get It Done?
Once you have your goal and you’ve made room for it in your schedule, you need to decide on a deadline.
Some business owners prefer to make their deadlines public. A public deadline can motivate you to finish your project and launch on your chosen date.
You don’t have to set a public deadline but accountability will not hurt you! You can share your goal with me privately or in our Community when you join the “From thought to Action” Challenge! This is an accountability program to help you if you struggle with accomplishing your goals.
When you join, the prep-work helps you decide and define your goal based on your chosen goal method and develop an action plan. You can share with me directly if you are struggling and I will respond to your privately with thoughts, ideas and suggestions.
Every day you check in and declare what you will work on for 30 days! At the end of the 30 days, you will either be closer to your goal OR you will have achieved that one thing you’ve been putting off!
The Community is available to you to ask questions and tap in for support from your like-minded people and every Thursday, I will host a “Weekly Office Hour” Thread, where you get to ask me questions and I will answer them!
